One man is in custody after allegedly assaulting a woman on the SkyTrain recently.

While details are slim at this point, Transit Police said the 21-year-old victim was allegedly sexually assaulted between the Broadway and Joyce Street stations, then again at the Joyce Street Station bus loop, just after midnight on January 27.

Police said a description of the suspect was sent out across the network and the 56-year-old suspect was taken into custody “a short time later.”

This is an ongoing investigation and no further information will be released at this time, said transit police in a statement.

“We thank the SkyTrain Attendants, witnesses and the Vancouver Police for their assistance in this investigation.”
